 SENATOR TAYLOR introduced HCR 19 (ENCOURAGE SALE OF STATE                     
 ROYALTY GAS) and invited JUDY JORDAN, to testify for the                      
 sponsor, REPRESENTATIVE GAIL PHILLIPS.                                        
                                                                               
 Number 348                                                                    
                                                                               
 MS. JORDAN urged the legislators to reaffirm their positive                   
 support for the sale of the North Slope royalty gas.  She                     
 explained the sale of this gas would add several hundred                      
 million dollars to the state's annual revenues, and provide                   
 a tremendous job and economic stimulus consistent with the                    
 construction and operation of a multi-billion transportation                  
 link.  She provided some history on the sale of liquified                     
 natural gas from the Kenai Peninsula said REPRESENTATIVE                      
 PHILLIPS was pleased to encourage the extension of trade to                   
 Japan.                                                                        
                                                                               
 MS. JORDAN  quoted REPRESENTATIVE PHILLIPS as saying, "... we                 
 are in the position to help balance the energy trade, and the                 
 environmental imperatives of the Pacific Rim."                                
                                                                               
 (Nothing more was done on the bill at this time, as there was                 
 no quorum.)
